Police appeal after road rage incident near M1

Posted on 23rd February 2015

Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was threatened after a road rage incident that started on the M1.

The victim was driving his Honda Civic up the slip road at junction 25 of the M1 when the driver of a blue BMW began gesturing at him.

Both vehicles then carried on towards Bostocks Lane, where the driver of the white Honda Civic got out of his car. The BMW was then driven towards him but the driver was not hit or injured.

Shortly after that incident, the victim drove off and later turned into Gough Grove, where he was stopped by the BMW driver and the driver of a silver estate car, believed to be a Volvo.

Both of those drivers confronted the victim and threatened him with violence.

Police want to hear from any witnesses to any part of the incident, which happened at about 7.45pm on Friday, February 20.

Anyone with information should call PC Sarah Carlile on 101, quoting crime reference 7509/15. You can also call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
